The a camera obscura was amazing. You reach it via a steep winding staircase. The friendly and informative guide explains how it works - the detail that can be seen of the town below is amazing. There is too much to see in the rest of the museum for one visit. There is a wide variety of interesting subjects on... 更多
We visited on a cold winters day and after wandering round looking at the history and artefacts we enjoyed an ice cream. The curator even allowed us to sit and watch a virtual tour of Robert Burns house.
This museum is excellent as it covers a great deal of local history, nature and industry. There are great views of the surrounding area. It has a camera obscura which is amazing and has to be seen to be believed.
Awful place nothing much happening, go somewhere else. Cant say anything else about it except that it is in a place where alcoholics like to hang out called the mill green. Avoid that park too, go to the dock p[ark
Visited the museum a few times over the years,so i thought I would have a look at the the exibits found recently on a dig south of Lockerbie .its well worth the visit even if you have been before.
The location of the museum is perfect as you get the glorious views of Dumfries town centre and the hills in the background. The museum has history from all over the Dumfries and Galloway area that goes back centuries and the spiral staircase is a unique feature as you don't see this in many museums.
If you have the chance to visit i would almost certainly go to the camera obscura as it gives you a great view of the town.
good little museum with very helpful staff .we were lucky to get a good view from the camera obscura
Was taken along by a brother and his wife. Well worth it, good information about local area history and wildlife. And then theres the camera obscura a definite must do.
It is one if the beat museums I've been; lovely exhibits and the staff were friendly and attentive. The kids loved it and the only down is not having more time to read all the facts. Specially interesting are the exhibits around the battle of Burnswark.
